Where is Mister Reiner?
What’s really great about having a diverse skill set, is that I can jump from one specialty within Information Technology to another rather easily. Switching gears is easy, I just need to roll up my sleeves and dive right in. All I need are some good books, some resources that I can tap into when I need some help and I’m good to go. I’ve been operating like this for over 20 years, so new challenges are always welcomed.
My roots are in application development and it is still the number one thing I enjoy doing in this field more than anything else – including computer security. When I can develop network security apps, it’s icing on the cake. I can write apps eight hours a day, seven days a week at work, and then go home and write apps and develop Web sites for fun. It’s just something that’s in my blood.
I’ve decided to take a break from all of this security stuff and devote my spare time to developing free and pay applications for Android – at least for the next few months. As a result, I’ll be spending less time here, and surfing other blogs and Websites. Developing quality software requires my undivided attention and I find all of this too distracting to be able to focus my thoughts and efforts. I’ll still be moderating comments and checking email.
If this is your first time here, take a look around. You might find some useful information to help keep your computers secure – and if you really want to learn something about computer security, read my book!
